Summary: So its best to use outdoors in the daytime or in a well lit room. For still pictures there is a flash though. All in all, for what i need it for, it works for me. great for spur of the moment use or even as a first camcorder for teens.
Summary: OK. This is not a high end camera. It will never be used by CNN! That is OK. This is a good camera for the average home user. It at a bargain price, and it has some great features for the price. If you need a good hand-held video camera and you do not have money to burn, this does the trick. As married seniors on a fixed income budget, this camera fits my own and our needs at a price we can afford!
Summary: I have had this for about a month and love it....I am still learning all of the features but I have to say that this is the best camera I have owned. The images are very clear and bright, zoom is fast and so is shutter time.
